Northanger Abbey

£9.99

Jane Austen’s superb pastiche of the gothic romance with an afterword by David Pinching.

Description

Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey is broadly comedic and brilliantly postmodern in its lampooning of a genre.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is gorgeously illustrated by Hugh Thomson and features an afterword by David Pinching.

Northanger Abbey tells the story of Catherine Morland, a naive young woman whose perceptions of the world around her are greatly influenced by the romantic gothic novels to which she is addicted. When she moves to Bath she sees mystery and intrigue all around her, not least of all in Northanger Abbey itself, the home of General Tilney and his handsome son Henry, where Catherine suspects a sinister crime has occurred.
